My friends and I have a weekly movie night. We all go to each others places rotating on a weekly basis and roll a dice to see who gets to pick the movie for that week. My friend Andrew (from the GTA crew @J.T.) won the roll this week, so for the first time ever, I watched HELLRAISER.
So, I'm not really sure what I was expecting, but it was definitely more gross than scary. Practical effects and make up were great. But there were definitely some eyerolling moments ("Jesus wept" gtfoh) I liked the story, but I dunno. I was never scared. And the Cenobites were dispatched WAY too easily. Also, I guarantee you more than a few people's erotic awakenings happened during this movie.
I get why it's a classic, but I was sort of middle of the road, leaning towards liking it.
(Also, Cenobite ABSOLUTELY sounds like something you'd get at a Cinnabon, which makes me very hungry.)
